Application.Rows Property (Excel)

Returns a Range object that represents all the rows on the active worksheet. If the active document isn’t a worksheet, the Rows property fails. Read-only Range object.

expression .Rows

expression A variable that represents an Application object.

Using this property without an object qualifier is equivalent to using ActiveSheet.Rows.

When applied to a Range object that’s a multiple selection, this property returns rows from only the first area of the range. For example, if the Range object has two areas — A1:B2 and C3:D4 — Selection.Rows.Count returns 2, not 4. To use this property on a range that may contain a multiple selection, test Areas.Count to determine whether the range is a multiple selection. If it is, loop over each area in the range, as shown in the third example.

This example deletes row three on Sheet1.

Worksheets("Sheet1").Rows(3).Delete

This example deletes rows in the current region on worksheet one where the value of cell one in the row is the same as the value in cell one in the previous row.

For Each rw In Worksheets(1).Cells(1, 1).CurrentRegion.Rows 
 this = rw.Cells(1, 1).Value 
 If this = last Then rw.Delete 
 last = this 
Next

This example displays the number of rows in the selection on Sheet1. If more than one area is selected, the example loops through each area.

Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate 
areaCount = Selection.Areas.Count 
If areaCount <= 1 Then 
 MsgBox "The selection contains " & _ 
 Selection.Rows.Count & " rows." 
Else 
 i = 1 
 For Each a In Selection.Areas 
 MsgBox "Area " & i & " of the selection contains " & _ 
 a.Rows.Count & " rows." 
 i = i + 1 
 Next a 
End If
